    You are correct @Maxx - I just looked at the data on the pic - 6 March.

    This one on the same trip too. Still had his velvet on.

    I had a quick day hunt up the Eastern Kawekas 2 weeks ago. Was hoping to blood the 28 Nosler so headed for a spot that offered some longer range opportunities.

    The first little lookout I poked my nose into for a quick look around before planning on venturing further.

    I got well and truly caught with my pants down. Nothing setup at all, cover still on rifle, bipod in pack, camera and tripod in pack ( I always like to film LR shots, especially when I my own so I can play back the shot and see exactly what happened).

    A quick glass around a few faces, then eyes back to the main one I wanted to look at, bugger me there's a bloody big jap stag standing out in the sun!!!

    I've never set everything up so fast, ranged it at 616 yards, calculated drop correction, dialled the turret and just as I was cranking a round into the chamber ready to shoot and I glance up to the camera screen to see the stag slowly walk off the little clearing into the bush.

    I waited him out for a couple of hours to see if he'd reappear on the other clearings on the face to no avail.

    That'll teach me for not being setup and ready.

    Greenish yellow probably suggests it was sceptic / necrotic. Did or smell?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    No smell that I could smell but didn't stick my nose in it.

    It must be a long time since she fawned, and she was still alive, so I would think the meat would be okay to eat.

    Arrrrh. Not sure if I would eat that but the meat should be fine. Don't think it will taste like Kaweka Sika though.

    Seen similar things in smaller game over many years, it appears contained in its own shell. Natural ways of survival, can't risk septicaemia , good for pet food tho. Just my view.

    You could try cooking a tiny bit and see how it tastes. If it's bad then dog tucker.
